Cooler/Smarter is a 7-session workshop series designed to help individuals and families that want to get serious about reducing their carbon footprints. Each workshop will take place at a different congregation throughout Grand Rapids and will be facilitated by a Climate Witness Partner. Session 4: Home energy use from all the electricity we use to power our appliances and electronics is another big source of your emissions, and one with lots of room for reductions. For example, compact fluorescent and LED bulbs give you the same amount of light while using one quarter of the electricity or less. So you’d have to shut off your incandescent bulbs entirely for three out of every four days to achieve comparable savings. Cooler Smarter offers lots of specific tips and strategies for reducing your electricity consumption. Register here:
